Student Success: Kimberly Dailey
Kim Dailey (’19 DVM) is currently a second year veterinary student at WSU, and is most interested in large animal and equine medicine. Although she grew up showing Arabian horses in Wenatchee, Washington, she initially pursued a career in museum studies and completed her bachelor’s degree in history at the College of William and Mary in 2010. She later rediscovered her love of animals while working at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. She enjoys the opportunities WSU offers to build her hands-on experience and completed a rotation in agricultural animal medicine in the hospital as a first-year student. As a first year, she also represented WSU at a national legislative fly-in to Washington, DC coordinated by the American Veterinary Medical Association. She now works as a teaching assistant in the Clinical Simulation Lab and serves as the Senior Herd Health Coordinator in the Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners. She plans to practice in large or mixed animal medicine and hopes to settle permanently in the Pacific Northwest. In her down time, she enjoys watching sci-fi shows with her husband and adventure buddy Jeff, cuddling with her cat Avery, and riding her horse Bailey.
